3. Problem description:

Ethereal is a program for monitoring network traffic.

Two denial of service bugs were found in Ethereal's IRC and GTP protocol
dissectors. Ethereal could crash or stop responding if it reads a malformed
IRC or GTP packet off the network. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project (cve.mitre.org) assigned the names CVE-2005-3313 and CVE-2005-4585
to these issues.

A buffer overflow bug was found in Ethereal's OSPF protocol dissector.
Ethereal could crash or execute arbitrary code if it reads a malformed OSPF
packet off the network. (CVE-2005-3651)

Users of ethereal should upgrade to these updated packages containing
version 0.10.14, which is not vulnerable to these issues.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

172297 - CVE-2005-3313 Ethereal IRC dissector DoS
176828 - CVE-2005-4585 ethereal GTP dissector could go into an infinite loop
176940 - CVE-2005-3651 ethereal OSPF Protocol Dissector Buffer Overflow Vulnerability
